The three local ggovernment’s slated for the pilot exercise include Tambuwal, Kware and Sokoto North local government areas.
According to him, the exercise would commence on Monday, 14 December, 2020 with Tambuwal local government area (LGA).
Therefore, all the staff of the three LGAs are advised to report to their respective workplaces to receive biometric data form for the exercise.
The staff of the selected LGAs are expected to go along with their credentials and letter of appointment, notification of promotion, and any other relevant documents.
The PS further explained that, the exercise is not meant to witch hunt any staff but rather to sanitize and fish out ghost workers from the pay roll of the respective local governments.
It could be recalled that, few months ago, Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal received a report in that regards and directed the ministry for local governments to conduct the exercise
